Jared Fischer

Dr. Fischer received a BS in Zoology and a BA in Chemistry from the Miami (OH) University in 2003.   Jared received a PhD from the University of Cincinnati in 2008.  The title of his thesis was "Mouse Models of Mutation in vivo."  He was an Albert J Ryan Fellow at the University of Cincinnati.  He is currently a postdoc in the department of Molecular and Medical Genetics in Mike Liskay's laboratory.  He recently received a postdoctoral fellowship from the American Cancer Society.  His current work involves studying colon cancer with a mouse model of sporadic cancer.  Their mouse model allows for the genetic manipulation of many different genes in single, isolated cells.
